Well OP, after looking at those I think Vice President Biden may be onto something with that Shotgun for defense theory. I don't think a bullet would even bother those critters. It'd take a good 12 gauge to end that slimy menace to man and vegetation alike.
I HATE snails! Hey tho..... I suppose some copious amounts of salt...Oh nvm, even those slimy beasts don't deserve that cruelty. Shotguns are quick. (Maybe rock salt loads? I'll compromise...)
I have read on a couple of sites that keeping them in a tub where they only have wheat germ to eat for a week or two will make them yummy.

I for one would really be interested. They are certainly 'cleaner' than any lobster, shrimp, or crab (which eat poop and detritus). In fact, I am starting to get an idea...
Their meat must be cleaner than genetically modified and cloned cows and chickens. They are so big that I'd have to cut off their heads before eating them. If people in Florida eat alligator they can eat snail.
